Lamorran House Gardens
Set on a four-acre south-facing hillside overlooking ST Mawes Bay, Lamorran is home to a vast collection of sub-tropical and warm temperature trees and plants. It is said to be the most northerly Palm Garden in the world having over 35 species of palms with over 200 specimens. There is an extensive collection of tree ferns, Dicksonias and many Cyathea species.
The Garden is laid out in Mediterranean style with many stream, bridges and water features including a koi-pond and several ornate temples, with the ever-present sea as a backcloth. Tender rhododendrons and evergreen azaleas flourish everywhere. There are areas dominated by Southern hemisphere plants with fine examples of banksias, proteas, callistemom, metrasideros and many species of acacias grown here too. On the rock faces agaves, aloes, puyas and aeniums abound. An intimate and quiet garden to linger in, with stunning views to the sea.
